Landlady’s manslayer concedes in Rawalpindi
RAWALPINDI: According to the Dawn News on Thursday, Nazia Anwar, the woman arrested overnight for murdering her landlady Fehmida, told the police on Wednesday that she committed the crime in a fit of anger.
In her confessional statement to the police she said she was visiting Fehmida in her portion of the house and got infuriated on her demand for the money she owed her.
Enraged, she said she closed the door of the room and stabbed her. Sub-inspector Khizar Hayat, who is investigating the murder, said police had recovered the dagger Nazia used to stab Fehmida fatally.
A deep gash in her neck and a plunge in her chest killed her on the spot, reported the doctor who carried out the postmortem. After her arrest Nazia too was taken to the District Headquarters Hospital for a medical check up.
She was put up in a woman police station and would be shifted to Adiala Jail.
Her victim was meanwhile buried. A stream of neighbours, mostly women, continued to visit the grieving family which includes her mother, a sister, her husband Azhar Mehmood, an army man, and their 18-month old son Abdullah. Cries of little Abdullah for his missing mother brought many visitors to tears.
Fehmida‘s family said that her killer had brought her son along on her murderous visit but fled leaving him behind. Relatives collected the boy soon after the gruesome murder and vanished, locking behind the portion of the house Nazia and her husband lived in.
